Today was MY DAY!

I woke up a little later than usual…

Remembered it was my Birthday!…k16274836

and then of course thought of my youngest son… It’s his birthday too!…

After getting my coffeek6319140 ... I looked at the clock and decided he would be free to take my call…

He answered with , “Happy Birthday!”… before I could say,“Hi!”…

 

We chit chatted awhile and then wished each other a good day as we ended with “I love you!”… almost simultaneously…

I was working today and Bobby decides to take me…

Arriving at work… I was greeted with Happy Birthday from Dennis as he opens the door to let me in…

I believe he was waiting for me where HE could be the first to say the words!…

After checking in I came into the room and another participant looks up from her wheel chair and proceeds to sing Happy Birthday to me…

She says, “I can’t believe I made it through the whole thing… and you could hear me!”…k19637196

I was loving it!…

Beautiful bright-colored Daisies OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA greeted me with a card signed by all of my co-workers  … plus a huge cheesecake of all flavors…

I was being pampered!… and it felt good!…

I was then sang to by all of the participants with many hugs… k6162310

Dennis and a few others helped measure out the ingredients and stir it together…

We placed miniature marshmallows in baggies with the mix to make a couple of cups… 

Then we attached the recipe to the bag…

This was to have at home…

Of course we made a pitcher of it for a tasting and all raved that it was GOOD!… k13314363

After lunch… I shared my cheesecake with all of the participants… “Best Cheesecake they had ever eaten!”, they said…

I love my days at work… and today was made extra special!

  1. I think you are an angel to so many. This is why everyone had to be there to wish you a Happy Beautiful Birthday, just like I am. Have fun at the movies. Take a piece of that cake in with you. lol

  2. Hey, happy belated birthday to you! And how fun that it’s your son’s birthday too! Sounds like it was a special day, just as it should be for a special woman! So glad you are feeling happy and blessed! ~ Sheila
